Rand Paul Aids Romney and Ryan in Ohio

ReTeaParty - Fri, 09/28/2012 - 15:10

DAYTON, Ohio — Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan arrived in Ohio this week to news of dropping poll numbers and a widening gap in the Buckeye state between the Republican nominee and President Obama. Luckily, they brought back up.

Sen. Rand Paul,R-Ky., joined the pair on the road Tuesday, and while he had planned to campaign for Romney, his appearance on the trail couldn’t have come at a better time. The libertarian worldview that made him and his father — Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas — populist heroes was on full display in his brief remarks before he introduced Romney and Ryan. Paul told the crowd he was “mortified” by the fact that people in foreign countries are on television burning the American flag and yet still receive foreign aid.

“They are attacking our embassy, burning our flag, torturing and imprisoning the man who helped us get (Osama) bin Laden . . . what’s President Obama’s answer? Send them more of your money,”

Tea Party Nominee Changes Tune

ReTeaParty - Thu, 09/27/2012 - 12:30

INDIANAPOLIS — Richard Mourdock became one of the tea party’s biggest winners of the 2012 primary season when he knocked off veteran Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar in a brutal campaign built on his contention that Lugar was too old, too out of touch andtoo friendly with Democrats – a RINO, Republican in name only.

But the movement’s biggest RINO hunter is now changing his tune as he tries to woo moderate voters in a tight race that stands as a key test of the tea party’s ability to win outside the nation’s most conservative states.

Mourdock is matched in the general election against moderate Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly, who is running even in recent polls despite Indiana’s Republican tilt. Suddenly, gone is the strident rhetoric in which Mourdock proclaimed that bipartisanship meant Democrats coming over to Republicans’ thinking and that winning meant he would “inflict my opinion on someone else.” In its place are support for parts of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, pledges to protect Democratic-championed programs like Social Security and Medicare, and even the once-shunned notion of compromise.

Tea Party Leader Now Supporting Akin

ReTeaParty - Wed, 09/26/2012 - 18:55

A tea party blogger who initially urged Rep. Todd Akin to step down after his “legitimate rape” gaffe is now calling on conservatives to support him, saying larger interests are at stake.

Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips wrote that “it’s time to take one for the team,” and support Mr. Akin — simply to stop his opponent, Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, from winning a second term and helping Democrats keep their Senate majority.
